The Magnificent Colors of Autumn

Autumn is an incredible season, and my favorite season, filled with incredible colors. Sadly these colors are only best for a short period of time before the colors fade. This weeks post is my autumn photography for 2020!

The first photo which is below was featured the blog post two weeks ago on my Google Pixel. This tree was one of the first trees to change color this fall and thought that I should start off with it.

The photo below was taken on my Google Pixel, more on that here, by a lake in the mountains. After walking in the woods, I found a leaf to bring back to the lake. I wanted to take a photo of the leaf with the clouds reflection.

Below is a photo taken while I went and walked through the woods. The colors looked magnificent but the sun through the trees wasn’t quite what I wanted. To fix this, I used an app called Lens Distortions. Youtuber Peter McKinnon mentioned this app in one of his videos and I love it. You can add sun effects like the one below as well as doing some color editing as well! The link here will take you to the website for it.

The photo below was taken around half way through the hike when crossing a road. I quickly bent over in the road to take a few shots. Roads and autumn colors go so well together because of the yellow lines in the road, they blend well with the trees.

This next photo was taken at a park near my house. The leaves are beginning to fall and so I am running low on time for getting these colors. Although this leaf is not perfect, it still has the wonderful vibrant autumn colors.

This next photo is of this gorgeous lake and the mountains. I loved the trees across the water with the vibrant colors so I took this photo.

This weeks final photo, my personal favorite, was a feature of the autumn leaves. I used a sun distortion from the Adobe Photoshop 2020 selection. These are just a bit different from the lens distortion app so I decided to use it. This style of photo was inspired by Kanbokeh on YouTube!
